Los Angeles Chargers Week 4 Game Release

Bolts host Raiders on Monday Night Football

The Los Angeles Chargers welcome the Las Vegas Raiders for the team’s first prime-time matchup of the year, kicking off at 5:15 p.m. PT from SoFi Stadium. Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick and Lisa Salters have the call on ESPN while Matt “Money” Smith, Daniel Jeremiah and Shannon Farren will broadcast on the Chargers Radio Network airwaves on ALT FM-98.7. Adrian Garcia-Marquez and Francisco Pinto will present the game in Spanish on Que Buena FM 105.5/94.3.

The Chargers have won 12 of the past 18 home contests against the Raiders, scoring 20-plus points in all but five of those matchups. The Bolts last hosted the Raiders on Monday Night Football 25 years ago. The teams have squared off on Monday 10 times, splitting the matchups evenly, 5-5, with the Chargers winning the last three. Los Angeles boasts some of the best offensive talent in football. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are two of the five AFC players to have at least 250 receiving yards on the season, while Justin Herbert leads the NFL with 19 passes on third down to move the chains. Williams has caught a touchdown in four straight games, the longest active streak in the NFL. Defensively, Asante Samuel Jr., leads all NFL rookies with two interceptions and four passes defensed on the season.

The Raiders offense is led by Derek Carr, who has a league-leading 1,203 passing yards in 2021. Each of Carr’s six touchdowns this season has gone to a different receiver. Las Vegas has started the season 3-0 for the first time since 2002, when they went on to represent the AFC in Super Bowl XXXVII. The Chargers remain in Southern California next week, squaring off against the Cleveland Browns for the first time in three years. The teams kick off from SoFi Stadium on Sun., Oct. 10 at 1:05 p.m. PT.
